  • Billionaire Mark Cuban on Monday said it would be “bad
    parenting” to run for president in 2020, but suggested he might
    go for it regardless. 
  • Cuban, an unabashed critic of President Donald Trump, has
    teased at a 2020 run in the past and
    polls have shown he could give Trump a run for his money.
  • Last November, Cuban said he’d likely run as an independent
    if he decides to challenge Trump. 

Billionaire Mark Cuban on Monday said it would be “bad parenting”
to run for president in 2020, but suggested he might go for it
regardless. 

At Business Insider’s IGNITION, an annual conference on tech and
media, global editor-in-chief Nicholas Carlson asked Cuban if
he’d made a decision yet on running after months of
speculation. 

“The definition of bad parenting is running for President,” Cuban
said, noting he has three children to focus on. But he added,
“So, we’ll see.”

Cuban, an unabashed critic of President Donald Trump, has teased
at a 2020 run in the past and
polls have shown he could give Trump a run for his money.

In November 2017,
Cuban said
he would run as an independent if he decides to go
head-to-head with Trump.

At
The New York Times DealBook Conference
, Cuban said he would
run as a Republican before running as a Democrat. But he then
added, “I think there is an incremental value for setting
up an independent candidacy…The benefit of being an independent
is you go right to the golden ticket time, if I get enough
support in the polls then I get to participate in the
debates.”

Cuban at the time said he would “absolutely not” consider
running as a Democrat. 

Cuban, much like Trump, has a lot of experience being in the
spotlight as the owner of the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks and a
regular presence on ABC’s “Shark Tank.”
